Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it's as a solo artist that he really shines. He became one of the most successful male vocalists of the 1980s, earning No. 1 hits starting with his debut in 1982, "Truly." Other hits include the Caribbean-flavored "All Night Long," "Endless Love" with Diana Ross, "Hello" and "Say You, Say Me," which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Now the five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at KeyArena. He'll perform favorites from throughout his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year's Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become a giant sing-along, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the '80s had to offer and much more. Sharing the stage with the five-time Grammy winner will be CeeLo Green. Known for his solo career as well as being a part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, Green has recorded numerous hits and is most widely recognized for the chart-topping single "Crazy" and his time as a judge on The Voice.

“Despite its exuberant title, Gloria ranges across more emotions and moods in its half-hour than many a full-evening drama or ballet.” —Crosscut.com (Read the full review .)
The third annual collaboration of Mark Morris Dance Group with Seattle Symphony features a mostly Baroque music program paired with stunning dance movement. This year’s engagement includes Seattle Symphony performing Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 2 in D major, A Lake; Bach’s Jesu, Meine Freude; and Vivaldi’s Gloria. The Tudor Choir will join Seattle Symphony for the Bach and Vivaldi pieces, and Gloria will feature special guest conductor, Seattle-native Mark Morris.
Conductor: Mark Morris
Composer: Antonio Vivaldi*
MMDG first premiered this piece in 1981 at Dance Theater Workshop in New York City. The New York Times said, “So much is going on at every moment that the mind and heart are dizzied, yet everything seems part of a whole. It’s really quite miraculous.”
Jesu, Meine Freude*
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
Conductor: Christian Knapp*
Premiered in 1993, Jesu, Meine Freude has been revived only a few times over the years because of the choir required to perform the piece. Thanks to the Tudor Choir, Seattle is among the limited cities where this piece will be shown outside of New York City.
Composer: Franz Joseph Haydn
Conductor: Christian Knapp*
Originally premiering on July 30, 1991, A Lake was performed by the White Oak Dance Project, the contemporary dance company co-founded by Mark Morris and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The Boston Globe described A Lake as a “magnificently lyrical work.”
